Logo and brand identity for Williamsburg's absinthe and oyster bar, Maison Premiere. All branding elements needed to be historically accurate to fit the bar's theme of 1890's New Orleans. The logotype was designed based on my research on 19th century absinthe advertising and packaging.

Design direction for the 2016 integrated campaign "You Should"–spanning TV, out-of-home, print and digital.
In this campaign Squarespace wanted to encourage everyone who has a passion, dream or idea to act on it and turn that dream into reality with a Squarespace website by saying "You Should".
In an attempt to inspire more people to follow their calling we featured real Squarespace customers who embody the "You Should" attitude; the creators, makers and doers who have followed their dreams and acted on their ideas.
The execution of the campaign centers around a modular design system where a series of individual units, build up to the encouragement of "You Should".

The U.S. senior population is expected to double by 2050. While we are staying healthier longer, and living longer too, we all become less able to varying degrees.
Perhaps the most stunning after effect of this is the isolation in which many of seniors live.
Meals on Wheels clients are depicted as happy, independent adults who live full lives—but much of that happiness is tied to the safety, comfort and inclusion they feel.
The program isn’t just about delivering balanced meals—it’s about coming to the door, chatting awhile, and reminding your recipients that they’re part of a greater whole.
As one client so nicely put it, “Having someone check on me assures me that I’m not forgotten.” What you’re being asked for isn’t just an hour of your time; it’s company and a fruitful exchange.
Our goal was to break through to people and drive them to donate time during their lunch breaks to not only deliver meals to seniors in need, but spend time and “do lunch” with them.
Visually, we achieved this by creating a design language that communicates vitality and immediacy.
We were honored to collaborate with renowned portrait photographer Mark Seliger to create striking monochrome portraits of real clients of Meals on Wheels America.

Proposed re-brand for Street Easy. The mark represents the brand as a utility for finding the dream apartment. The location pin is the core, with complementary graphic elements to depict a compass and a human eye. The branding also included graphic abstractions of city street grids—-the shapes and style are reflected in the web design explorations.
As part of Grey New York’s creative team tasked to brand the One World Observatory, my direction was proposed and recommended by the agency.
My concept: the Observatory is an observation deck that floats above the city, but is also a prism that refracts and reflects the light from the cityscape and the sky. The mark is an abstract representation of this idea. The framework of the mark is the architectural footprint of the One World Trade Center building--the ocular shape at the heart of it as a nod to the Observatory’s amazing views. The color palette is pulled from the color of light that is reflected off the glass building throughout different times of the day.
Imagining the Observatory as a cultural space featuring music performances and world class art installations, I explored how the shifting refracted colors of the branding would integrate into interactive and printed deliverables-- the colors would correspond to what the quality of light reflected by the building at that time of day.
It's not every day the most iconic city in the world wakes up to a new football club. One with not just players, but with legends like Andrea Pirlo, David Villa and Frank Lampard.
But how do you tell millions of New Yorkers, with hundreds of different cultures, this is the team they should start supporting? How do you build a fanbase from scratch for a sport that's not particularly popular in the US?
By uniting them with the one thing that represents them all; their love for the city they live in. That's how #SupportYourCity was born.

Full brand experience for education non-profit Eureka Math at the 2015 NCTM trade show in Boston. I worked with a team of fabricators and motion designers to create two large scale replicas of the classroom featured in their brand video, complete with projection mapping.

One of the leave-behinds for attendees included a custom deck of playing cards utilizing icons inspired by the Eureka Math curriculum.

AskGrey was designed as a fourm for employees of Grey New York to interface with the (very sassy) HR department anonymously– often with hilarious results that left the agency buzzing. Since its launch the internal site has become an agency-wide favorite. The UX was designed to encourage employees to interact and ask anything, at any time, explore other topics, search tags, scroll endlessly, and be in on running jokes.
